The Jewish monarchies, enumerated in the Hebrew Bible, spanned a period of 423 years--from Saul (1010 BCE) to Zedekiah (587 BCE). It was not always "smooth sailing" for the monarch at the helm of the Jewish commonwealth. How they reined and what they accomplished is the subject of this course. Some of their victories, however, are remembered in celebrations observed to this day.
